Musical Comedy.
Hippodrome Buster Browr
fe ' Nelson ...The Poppy Girl's Husband
|&t Dixie "Too Many Crooki
jftiPrincess Some Bride
Eg.' |T .was a crowded house that last
. I night witnessed at the H pp the
)&', *B?st performance of "Bustet
Brown," and later got ample fun out
?- Of the country grocery store. Schultze
fig;'" graciously loaned bis store for the
occasion ,and everything went just
fine. As on the first night, little
June Henrlcl was the big favorite ol
. the evening, and she performed her
' aeroplane stunt coming out over the
Bti; :StUdience just like a regular Ruih
Law. This little prodigy has a future
tfc of great promise, and should she fol?.?'
: low the profession she will achieve
jir .> things worth while, it becomes more
evident all the while that Lamar was
a- cut out ror the part of Schultze the
K Je; grocer. His work on the stage indif'J;'
cates that "he Is no beginner, fot
Pf't training has made him a finished actor.
Billy Malone seemed more al
home last night than usual and with
St the addition of a few lines all the way
through, the comedy was made much
keener, parts that one would think
good for a laugh, however, fall flat
Ian't it funny, for Instance to imagine
building the steeple of a church first
and then pushing the church undet
. It? Maybe Clal Stewart took the e-igo
off the Idea when he suggested to the
board of "skule" directors that they
"build the r.ew skulehouse out of the
\- bricks o fthe old skule house, and
tJ that they do not tear down the old
Bkulehouso until they get the new
skule house built." But sometimes
there were regular uproars where
there seemed to be less provocation
and the average was allright. Ruth
Dale was al! smiles last night because
she had her audience going right.
oFur or five encores made the cleve:
little lady feel that she was appreciated.
After the matinee there Is
lust one more opportunity to sec Buster
In his funny tricks, unless the
company agrees to put it on again
which it seems would not be a bad
Idea as the bill is one of the best
Convict, Bill Hart
With hair cropped to ugly prison
style and clothed in drnbprlson garth
B1U Hart comes to the Nelson again
this week, playing there the last time
tonight In "The Poppy Girl's Hus
band," a picture which has a tenden
, cy 10 onn atowiy at times, but which
must proceed it a measured mannei
to keep from squandering the psychological
merits of the picture. Going
to the core of the matter, the at
Utude of convict toward his faithless
wife can not be shown in an instant
there must be a succession of events
leading up to a climax. The picturf
proves on the serin only, that Hill
Hart is as handy v;h a burglar'ss kit
as he is witih a six-shooter, another
way of saying that the Western character
is not the only on that Bill can
portray with success. Hart's antics
with the boy Georgio Stone form an
interesting chapter in the story, and
tho young artist himself takes th'
Juvenile part with amaing cleverness.
"Crooks'' not "Cooks."
A paraphrase seemingly on the well
known words of an old adage. "Toe
many Cooks.' etc., is the subject ol
the picture at the Dixie todoay. and
as we see the story, it reads, "Toe
Many Crooks.' It is taken from the
novel by E. J. Roth, and gives Gladys
Letlle abundant opportunity to exercise
her boasted talent.
